This dress is absolutely adorable. Love the print and the shape is so easy and comfortable! It does run a bit big throughout the midsection so I would size down for backup.

A fun party dress that will make you feel comfortably pretty.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

I took the advice on ordering a size down but wish I had done the opposite because the dress is very fitted around the waist. The rest of the dress fits very comfortably, the material feels a bit padded so it's perfect for a winter party. The skirt is full and I love how it swings! Added pockets are a plus.

Classy & Quirky makes for a great NYE dress!

This was the perfect dress for New Year’s Eve. It was comfortable, classy and something different from the typically black New Year’s Eve attire. The pockets are a wonderful perk and allowed me to always have my lip gloss nearby. This dress runs very true to size and there is no stretch in the fabric. I would recommend ordering your regular size and select the size larger for your extra dress…just in case.

Perfect dress for a fun party!

I loved, loved, loved this dress. It's a little tight in the bust, but that's standard for me and dresses. It was also a little long in the waist, since I'm on the short side, but I just tucked it up a bit and added a sparkle belt. Between the belt and a black tuxedo jacket, it was a really fun and unique outfit. Highly recommend!

Perfect dress, wonderful experience & totally comfortable, well worth it!

I certainly could have worn the 8, but chose to wear the 10 just because it was a smidge more comfortable. I am a 36B in the bust, with a 31 inch waist. The style of this dress was complimentary to my figure. I found it very comfortable and enjoyed the pockets. I normally wear either an 8 or a 10, depending on the designer. I wore the dress to a business dinner that my husband was hosting and received several compliments. Along with the dress, I wore sheer black tights, patent leather shoes and topped it with a beaded cropped cardigan. I am very pleased with my first experience with RTR.

I rented this dress for a work party. It fit me perfectly and was very comfortable. The length of the skirt and the neckline were very appropriate for a professional setting, but the print and cut are so flirty and cute that it was still very fun. I was helping to run the party, so the pockets were a very helpful surprise! I loved renting this dress, and I'm sure it'll be the first of many fabulous Kate Spade adventures for me!

Lovely dress for any occasion!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

I wore this to my rehearsal dinner and it was beautiful! I received lots of compliments. I typically wear an 8, and this was a bit snug on the torso area. I'm top heavy, and I think the dress made me look a bit too busty for the occasion. Still a wonderful dress!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I normally wear a size 4, but I really wanted this dress and the size 2 was the only size available on the date of my event. I went for it, and it fit! I will say the top half of the dress does not have much give, so it would probably work best on someone with a smaller bust. I would definitely suggest a necklace. I rented the necklace on the model, and I LOVED how it all pieced together. I would rent this dress again.

I want to own this dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress fit perfectly. I'm a pear shape, so I look best in dresses that are fitted on top and flow out at the bottom. The print on this dress is adorable and oh-so-Kate-Spade. Someone even said I look like a walking Kate Spade ad. I wore this to a spring outdoor wedding, and although it is very very nice, the print is cutesy enough that I didn't feel "overdressed". The pockets made me very happy. The length was perfect (hit right above the knee, but I'm short). Another plus? I could wear a normal bra with it!

Bridal shower perfection

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress for my Valentine's Day themed bridal shower and it was so perfect! I love the rose gold zipper detail on the back. My only negative is my hair kept getting stuck in the exposed zipper's teeth. If you don't have really long hair like I did when I wore it, or if you wear your hair up, you'll be fine! I paired it with black pumps and gold accessories.

Got this dress as a backup style - so cute I had to wear both!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

Adorable dress, in such pretty colors! I wore this for my wedding rehearsal, then changed into the kate spade sequin dress for the rehearsal dinner! This dress has an adorable silhouette, and it pretty true to size. I had read other reviews stating that it's tight for busty girls, and I found this to be true as well. There is a seam that goes straight down the middle of the front of the dress, but if it is too tight in the busy the seam will curve right under the bust line. I tried on the 8 as well, but everything else about the 6 was perfect so I just wore it and noone noticed the seam. Super super cute girly dress!

This is a great spring dress. I loved the pink and black together. It is thicker layered material so it was warm enough with a shrug and tights for mid-western April weather. As several other reviews have mentioned, it's tight through the rib cage which is why I went with the bigger size. Other than that, it was pretty perfect!

The dress is very fitted around the ribcage, but easy around your stomach, due to the flare. It worked great for my size, shape, and height. I loved it.

The top fits tight, around the chest area. I had a 2 on but it wouldn't zip. It was almost like my back was too wide for the 2. I had to go up to the 4.

I felt great in this dress. The material doesn't give much, esp at the top, so if u r bigger breasted, you might want to size up. I usually wear a 4, but ended up wearing the 6 because of my cup size (D).

Kate Spade for the win!

Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this stunning Kate Spade dress for a charity event held at a country club in Dallas (hence the carpet in the picture, country club chic). As par for the course, I received so many compliments on it! It was perfectly conservative given the environment and fit very true to size. I have zero curves so this dress might not work for someone with any sort of chest (how I am so jealous of you if this is the case). I paired this with my favorite pair of Manolos and matching Kate Spade ring. It was a total win!

I'm so glad I rented this dress! I ordered a 4 and a 6, but the fabric really doesn't stretch so the 6 was just right. The material is a bit on the heavy side, so beware if you're going to an outdoor event in the heat. I was definitely sad to send this one back!

I've never worn a dress before that molded so perfectly to my body! I wore a 0 which fit true to size. I did wear my bombshell add 2 cup sizes bra and this dress made me so curvy (which I hardly am being a marathoner). I was totally in love with the fit and POCKETS!! I was a little less enthused about the color pattern (darker than the picture made me think it was).

I wore this dress for graduation. I wished it wasn't hidden underneath my robe all day! When my robe came off, everyone raved about how cute this dress was. I even wore it into the Kate Spade store and all the women were in love with it. I absolutely loved everything about it but my fave was the pockets - perfect for my lipgloss and cell phone!

I wore this dress for a tea and loved it for the occasion. I usually wear a 00 and the 00 I rented fit perfectly. The dress was a little longer on me than the model. I loved that the dress had pockets and the unexpected rose gold zipper in the back. You can also wear a regular bra with this dress which is a huge plus. Material felt a bit "padded" as someone else mentioned. Overall the dress was great! I paired it with black heels, pearl accessories, and black/blush fascinator. I also ended up wearing a sweater because of the temps.

I ordered a 00 and 0 because the reviews said it ran small. I am normally a 0 and it fit snug so I probably could have worn a 2.

Good dress for a wedding

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Contrary to other reviews, I found this dress to be a perfect fit. It worked very well for an outdoor wedding I attended - offered just the right amount of conservative-ness without feeling frumpy. My only complaint is the lining of the dress very clearly hung lower than the hem of the dress. That would have been OK if it was intentional and even all around the whole skirt, but it only hung lower in the front center. The pockets were a nice bonus.

Very flattering to wear. Lots of compliments on how well it fit and gave me a beautiful hourglass shape. Heels are a must with it for the complete look. It was a little heavy, and I was worried being in a church without AC in 80 degrees heat, but it worked out fine despite being a little hot. The 6 would have worked, but I had predicted the heat in the church and figured the bigger dress would give me a little relief.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress fit true to size, and was quite comfortable. I got lots of compliments on it. Two small issues: 1) It has quite a thick lining, so it was not as light and summery as I expected. I would have been pretty sweaty on a hot day. 2) The zipper also got stuck in the lining really easily on both sizes I got. Overall, though, it was a great dress, and I'm really glad I did it Rent the Runway!

This photo is from after a hot outdoor wedding. It's very tight on the top; just last weekend I rented another dress in a size 12, but I'm glad I got the next size up for this one. Pockets are nice, flare is nice. I would rent this dress again, but I don't know if it's my favorite. My skin has pink undertones, I felt very pink. The necklace on the model is a nice accessory. The length of the dress is nice, bending over I didn't fear of exposing myself
